*They’ve already put a lot of thought into this!
The couple already have in mind who to write the screenplay and star in the biopic.
*Gabourey Sidibe graced the Golden Globes red carpet wearing a cream-colored gown with jeweled accents – and immediately, Twitter pounced.
“She looks like a condom,” one user wrote.
“Geez! She looks like the chubby ghost from Casper,” another posted.
The 30-year-old Globe nominee for “American Horror Story: Coven” eventually responded to her haters.
You know what that means. Or doesn’t mean. :( OK, put it this way … traditionally, the Golden Globe (drama) winner has NOT been a good indicator of who will win Best Picture at the Academy Awards.
*Kerry Washington being pregnant has been one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood for months now.
That was before Sunday ’cause now it’s official. Kerry, who’s married to former NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha, showed up with her beautiful belly bump on the red carpet at the Golden Globes and confirmed it.
*Does an actor have to actually like the character he or she is playing in order to do it justice?
Don Cheadle’s portrayal of ethically-challenged management consultant Martin Kaan in Showtime’s “House of Lies” earned him a Golden Globe win earlier this year, and a second nomination this morning. The character and his ill behavior are no doubt entertaining, but the man who inspired the character said his own win-at-all-cost philosophy was hard to bear.
“I was a consultant. I hated myself,” said Martin Kihn a former employee of Booz Allen Hamilton and the author of “House of Lies: How Management Consultants Steal Your Watch and Then Tell You the Time.”
“I think that consultants are a lot like actors, and the skill is not to solve a business problem or really to have any expertise” he told us. “The skill is to be able to present oneself as someone who could solve a business problem or may potentially have expertise. So we’re taught a whole vocabulary that can be applied in any situation. I mean, we could literally go into any industry and sound like we knew what we were talking about just because we’re using these words that we were taught. So in a way there’s a sense of dishonesty. It’s not perfectly disingenuous or ingenuous, and I don’t like consultants. My brother’s a consultant. I don’t like him.”
But, does Cheadle like Marty? Listen to his answer below.
Showtime will premiere the third season of “House of Lies” on Sunday, Jan. 12 at 10 p.m.
Watch the teaser below.
*Kerry Washington, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Lupita Nyong’o are speaking out about their fresh Golden Globe nominations, announced this morning in Beverly Hills by the Hollywood Foreign Press.
“I’m enormously grateful to the Hollywood Foreign Press for this honor,” said Washington, nominated for best actress in a TV drama. She’ll face Julianna Margulies of “The Good Wife,” Tatiana Maslany of “Orphan Black,” Taylor Schilling of “Orange is the New Black” and Robin Wright from “House of Cards.”
“It’s humbling to be nominated alongside such talented and hard-working women whose work inspires me,” said Washington.
Ejifor, one of a leading seven nominations for “12 Years a Slave,” says he is grateful for this wave of acclaim.
“Ever since we opened this film back in Telluride, it’s been an especially engaging process and I’ve really enjoyed it,” he said. “Ever since I read script I have found Solomon’s journey incredible and I am just glad that so many people have begun recognizing the film.”
His co-star, Lupita Nyong’o,” revealed where she was this morning when she heard the news: “I’m in Paris now and what a beautiful place to get such beautiful news. I heard it live on the radio and it was a terrifying experience to be waiting. It was a roller coaster, for sure. Exhilarating. I was shocked, horrified and thrilled. I have to admit I didn’t hear the nominations after my name was called, I was too busy screaming and crying, so I have to go look to see who else was nominated. When I heard all the nominations for the film, it was a party, dude! We had our Paris premiere yesterday so there’s been cause for a lot of celebration. It’s been an incredible 24 hours.”
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are returning to co-host the Golden Globes ceremony, which will be held Jan. 12 in Los Angeles.
